LEIGH Centurions' prop forward Tom Spencer has signed a new contract at the club until the end of 2021.

Spencer has played more than 100 times for Leigh Centurions and is currently in his second permanent spell with the Club having re-joined from London Broncos in 2019. He earned #HN1357 when he pulled on a Leigh shirt for the first time in 2012 while on Dual Registration from Wigan Warriors.

The 29-year-old said he was very happy to be staying at the Club where he continues to flourish under the guidance of Head Coach John Duffy.

"I feel we had started to head in the right direction last season and was hopeful that 2020 was going to be another breakthrough year," said Spencer who started his professional career with Wigan Warriors.

"Hopefully what has happened this year will only prove to be a delay in our progress and I'm happy to still be part of John Duffy's plans. It has been great at the Club since John took over and he has worked hard on creating the correct culture and environment for the players.

"It will be difficult to carry on where we left off and I'm sure a lot of other clubs have used it as an opportunity to reset things and look to improve. But I am confident we can if we don't leave any stone unturned and get stuck in with the same attitude we showed at the start of the year."

Head Coach Duffy said: "Tom has been at the Club for a number of years now and is a good professional. He will do anything for you and is a great person to have in our group. Tom has shown me that he has great leadership qualities and is very clued up about the game and always looking to improve. He's a big boy who is tough to handle and I'm so pleased to have him in our squad."
